Problematic for me is the wirering.
Lot s of no more needed elektrical stuff as navigation, soundsystem, roof, ac....
Is it possible to reduce the cable harness?
And, can i deinstall the psm?
Thanks for reading. Best regards Robert
The wiring is the last place I'd look. Here are some easy ones:
-Convert the convertible top to a manual top. Just remove the motors and linkages
-Switch to lighter weight seats (factory seats are pigs)
-install a stainless muffler, the factory one is absurdly heavy. You can easily cut 30lbs here
-lightweight wheels, also reduces rotational and unsprung weight
